Crystal Palace star wants summer departure

Zaha on the move?

Crystal Palace star wants summer departure

16 May 2019 - 12:43

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has reportedly informed the Eagles hierarchy about his desire to leave the club amid interest from the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.

  • Chelsea suffer fresh injury blow ahead of Europa League final
  • Manchester United set asking price for versatile defender

  • The Ivorian has been heavily linked with the Premier League duo over the past six months and it appears that he is prepared to pursue a bigger challenge ahead of next season.

    According to The Mail, Zaha has already put the wheels in motion to leave the south London side and he has communicated about the same to chairman Steve Parish.

    The Eagles had valued Zaha at around £50m during the 2018 summer transfer window but they are now said to want at least £80m to part ways with the versatile attacker.

    Such a valuation should prove a genuine hurdle for the Gunners, who are likely to work on a pre-saled budget of £40m unless they qualify for next season's Champions League.

    Aside from United and Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with Zaha in the past but they are likewise expected to hang back on making an approach unless the Eagles lower their asking price.
